Made this a few years ago. It's delightful, still have a bottle or two left.
1) pick and stem enough Morello-type cherries to fill a 5 gal. carboy. Leave pits.
2) Add honey and water to 1.140 to fill.
3) Pitch Wyeast Sweet Mead.
Rack, sulphate, condition, bottle in clear splits.
Makes a beautiful brighter, transparent red beverage with complex flavors, quite strong.
Good way to use up cherries without much labor since the harvest window is short.
